We’ve been talking about a lot of Ninja Turtles statues and action figures as of late, but something tells me that these particular collectibles will be much more popular among the TMNT fan community. After all, unlike the other TMNT figures we’ve seen recently, these were actually designed by co-creator Kevin Eastman. It’s difficult to get more authentic than that, folks! We’ve already talked about these particular Ninja Turtles collectibles before, but this is the first time that we’ve seen the official designs fully painted. As if they didn’t look good enough, this expert paint job has definitely added some beautiful detail to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles figures being developed by Threezero.
Featured in the latest issue of Clutter Magazine, these images look very promising. As if the fine details on display aren’t enough, they also include a variety of weapons to be held. In addition to the customary katana, sai, nunchaku and bo staff, you’ll also find additional weapons such as daggers, throwing stars and smoke bombs. Even the weapons are well designed, as they each look weathered from years of use. No matter how you want to display these beautiful TMNT figures, you’ll have a variety of options to choose from thanks to the plethora of tools at your disposal.
Sharp eyed fans will note that these designs aren’t entirely accurate to the comics, although they are somewhat similar. Kevin Eastman has always been one to try new things from time to time, so this slight design change shouldn’t come as too much of a shock. At nearly 12 inches in height, these figures are a bit bigger than the standard TMNT action figure, and they’re definitely detailed enough to serve as an excellent show of respect for your favorite heroes in a half shell. To be honest, I’m sure most fans will be more than pleased with the results of these awesome TMNT figures.
What do you think? Are you psyched to pick these up in the near future? If so, check out the latest issue of Clutter for their interview with Kevin Eastman and Kim Fung Wong to learn more about these fantastic Ninja Turtles figures!
